Politics on Facebook

Posted · Add Comment

For the record, I try to keep politics off my personal Facebook page. I’m a segregationist; Politics is on Twitter, what’s going on in my life is on Facebook. (Watch someone take that out of context.) However, if other people are putting all their political garbage on Twitter, I will occasionally comment. Which brings us […]

Talking California Taxes

Posted · Add Comment

I’ll be on Dave Congalton’s show in less than an hour talking California taxes. Late last week, Democrats in Sacramento unveiled a plan that would raise taxes on millionaires.

Posted · 1 Comment

I’m scheduled to make an appearance on Dave Congalton’s Hometown Radio show this evening to talk about this op-ed by Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton and the fallout that resulted in Editorial Page Editor James Bennet’s ouster at the hands of mostly younger, woke journalists.

We’re being ill-served by the media.

A couple of weeks ago I volunteered to go on local radio host Dave Congalton’s show in the wake of the shootings in Alexandria, Va., and San Francisco, defending the 2nd Amendment from the inevitable calls for more (ineffectual) gun control. You can listen to my appearance here, but William Moser wasn’t happy with my […]

My weekend column and other thoughts

Posted · Add Comment

My weekend column for the local media outlet, the San Luis Obispo Tribune is available and it focuses on the contempt too many politicians—both left and right—have for our constitution. I think we’d have a much less divided and contentious nation if there was less government meddling in places where it has no constitutional sanction. The […]
